Case Study

Systematic Review and Network-Meta Analysis of Therapies in a Chronic Disease

The Problem

A pharmaceutical company wanted to understand the treatment landscape in a chronic disease and compare its treatment’s efficacy and safety to other existing therapies.

The Solution
 

  • Conducted a systematic review of randomized control trials (RCTs) evaluating the efficacy and safety of treatments in the disease area
  • Performed the review in accordance with the general principles recommended in the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) statement
  • Identified studies and conducted feasibility assessment for network meta-analysis (NMA)
  • Conducted an NMA to explore comparative estimates of relative efficacy and safety of the treatment versus other relevant therapies
  • Used Bayesian Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) approach on each outcome of interest
  • Performed the analysis using WinBUGS and R using the R2Winbugs interface package
